You have gotten a Real Estate License? Why would one want to hurry to buy in Vegas at this point?

I have to admit it would certainly help the RE industry...but it would not do much for the buyer.

Las Vegas supports both life forms...
I lived at 9100 West Flamingo and my best friends live in Henderson and SW Vegas. I ran from the strip when I got off work until the end when I lived there. I spent plenty of time all over Vegas. Middle class suburbs don't have casinos and they don't have slot machines in the supermarkets and gas stations. Insert gambling and a place changes drastically. Vegas is like some suburbs, it just has a few extras .

Vegas is ok but dude...it is what it is and you can't whitewash it.

And every 711 in the Midwest and California sells lottery tickets. At times with lines outsde the store. That turn the entire midwest into a den of iniquity? Many good sized cities have a horse racing facilitiy...that turn them into a dark place?

The mere existance of gambling changes little. The vast majority of people here gamble a little. Those who are addictied to gambling should not live here. But the reasonably well adjusted do fine.
